Boyz in the Wood

ALT | Altered States

Three teenage ne’er-do-wells (Rian Gordon, Lewis Gribben, Viraj Juneja) are saddled with a milquetoast tagalong (Samuel Bottomley) as they embark on a forced expedition through the Scottish highlands in the misguided hope that such a wholesome outing will prove rehabilitative. Instead, the trek leaves them easy targets for upper-class predators (led by an in-form Eddie Izzard as "The Duke") intent on stalking the most foul-mouthed, ADHD game.

Boyz in the Wood doesn’t so much dip its toe into the same folk-horror waters as Midsommar as cannonball in before immediately getting banished for too much horseplay. As shots are fired and f-bombs are dropped, Ninian Doff lets fly with a barrage of set pieces and visual flourishes, ratcheting up the stakes and antic comedy in unison. It seems that bad behaviour might just be these reprobates’ only hope of survival.

"A riotous teen movie/horror mash-up that confidently veers from gross-out humour to surreal flights of fancy to crude, but surprisingly pointed, social commentary… Boyz marks Doff out as a real talent to watch." - Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
